How To Fix The LG V40 ThinQ Facebook Keeps Crashing Issue

Facebook is currently the leading social media company in the world with an estimated monthly active users of more than 2.3 billion as of December 2018. Anyone can access their accounts using any computing device but the most convenient way is by using an app on your phone. Although the Facebook app itself is quite stable there are instances when it will keep on crashing. If your phone has this issue then you should follow the troubleshooting steps listed below to fix the problem.

Update your phone software

The first thing that you should do in this case is to make sure that your phone is running on the latest software version. If an update is available then I suggest that you download and install it first. This will eliminate any possible compatibility issues between your phone software and the Facebook app.

Once your phone has the latest software version installed try to check if the issue still occurs.

Perform a soft reset

Try to refresh the phone software by doing a soft reset. Although step is usually done when the device is unresponsive however it is also recommended in this case as refreshing the phone software will usually eliminate any temporary corrupt data from the device.

  • Press and hold the Power and Volume down key for up to 45 seconds.
  • Wait as the device restarts.

Check if the issue still occurs.

Clear the cache and data of the Facebook app

The Facebook app will store data that is constantly being used in order to provide a smooth experience. There’s a possibility that this cached data has become corrupted which in turn is causing the app itself to constantly crash. To eliminate this possibility you will need to clear the cache and data of this app by following the steps listed below.

  • From the Home screen, tap Settings.
  • Tap the ‘General’ tab > Apps & notifications.
  • Tap App info.
  • Tap the filter to select the following: All, Enabled, Disabled
  • Tap the desired app, then Storage.
  • Tap Clear cache or Clear Data then YES

Check if the issue still occurs.

Install the latest version of the Facebook app

If clearing the cache and data of the app fails to work then you should just uninstall the app from your phone then download the latest version from the Google Play Store. This new version might just fix the issue that you are experiencing with your device right now.

To uninstall the Facebook app

  • From the Home screen, tap Settings.
  • Tap the ‘General’ tab > Apps & notifications.
  • Tap the filter to select the following: All, Enabled, Disabled
  • Tap the desired app.
  • Tap Uninstall, then tap OK.

Once the app has been uninstalled search for it again in the Play Store then install it.

Wipe the cache partition of the phone

There are cases when the cached data stored in the dedicated partition of the phone can become corrupted. When this happens this will usually cause certain issues to occur on the phone. To eliminate the possibility that this is what’s causing the problem you will have to wipe the cache partition of the phone from the recovery mode.

  • From the Home screen, tap Settings.
  • Tap the ‘General’ tab.
  • Tap Storage > Internal storage.
  • Wait for menu options to finish calculating.
  • Tap Free up space.
  • Tap Temporary files & raw files.
  • Select the following options: Cached data, Clip tray temporary files, Raw files from camera.
  • Tap Delete > DELETE

Check if the LG V40 ThinQ Facebook keeps crashing issue still occurs.

Perform a factory reset

In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then there is a possibility that this is caused by a system glitch. The best way to deal with this right now is to perform a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset.

  • Turn off the device.
  • Press and hold the Power and Volume down buttons.
  • When the LG logo appears, quickly release and then re-hold the Power button while continuing to hold the Volume down button.
  • When the ‘Delete all user data (including LG and carrier apps) and reset all settings’ message appears, use the Volume down button to highlight Yes.
  • Press the Power button to reset the device.

Setup the phone, but do not install any apps yet except for the Facebook app, then check if the issue still occurs. If it does then your best option right now is to contact the Facebook support team for further assistance. You can also try using a different app that allows you to access your Facebook account aside from the official Facebook app or access your account using the phone browser.
